Faith Life at St Augustine’s Priory.
Our Holy Week at St Augustine’s Priory started with a joyous Palm Sunday procession on Tuesday with children from the Nursery to Preps waving their handmade Palm Leaves and greeting Jesus as he made his way into Jerusalem on a donkey.
Starting with a prayer service the children processed to the Prep Meadow where palm leaves were raised aloft and waved and on their return to the Prep Playground they decided to repeat Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem as they had enjoyed it so much the first time round!
On Wednesday Father Thomas celebrated Mass for the Juniors and Prep III – a fitting end to term filled with enthusiasm and wonderful prayers from the girls of Upper IIA who had organised the Mass.
In the afternoon the Chapel was filled with Seniors and staff while Priory 6 read the Passion according to St John around the altar with the organ loft filled with Priory 6 members who acted as the crowd. This was such a moving occasion, bringing home to us all the meaning of Holy Week.
